Something new: Same-sex wedding ceremonies at churches

From Chicago-

Church musician Robert Vogler, 62, has participated in his fair share of marriage ceremonies. But none will be more special than the one taking place Sunday. It’s the day marriage equality becomes legal statewide in Illinois. And it’s the day he and his partner of 23 years, Anthony Dobrowolski, will exchange marriage vows in the place they’ve called their church home for two decades. The couple always wanted to get married.“We never had that option, and it didn’t seem like . . . in our lifetime that we ever would,” Vogler said. “When [the law] passed, we decided we’re going to do it, and we wanted to do it on June 1.”
